Steps to Prevent Illness
In the recent news, with coronavirus disease spreading we want to remind people of some simple ways to help the spread of the virus. There is no need to panic, but simply avoid being exposed to the virus, and do your best to wash your hands more than often, and stay home when you’re sick.
The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) has some great information about the coronavirus disease available.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and they say the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
They say to wash your hands often, avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home if you’re sick, and clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
